Tuesday Tip – 071514

By There are no tags 0 comments

Hello Folks! I am going to start posting blogs of Yoga/Mobility warm ups and cool downs! I will give y’all some knowledge to give your body some love after kicking your own ass in class! Love/Hate relationship. :) 

 
Todays work out: 
 
1a. Bench Press – 3 sets x 5 reps @ 80%; tempo 21×2
1b. Ring Rows (strict) – 3 x 8-12 reps; tempo 3133
 
2. 2 x 1500m, rest 4 mins between sets
 
Before Class:
 
10- Downword Dog Poses, glide down into a Strict Plank, lower slowly to the floor and press up to an Up-dog. 
Tips: In the Down-dog, Hands and feet are in the distance of your plank. Press back, meaning push your butt to the ceiling, core engaged and shoulders are open.(don’t squeeze scapulas together) – Plank, very simple. Lower down like a strict push up. – Up-dog, to press up you need to engage your legs. To do so, Your laces are pressing against the floor, which will pull your knees, thighs and hips off of the floor. Your core is tight and your head in neutral to your spine. The only parts of you body that should be touching the floor in a Up-dog are your hands and the tops of your feet. (laces)
 
5 each arm, 4 way band stretches. You all have done this before in classes. 
- Band Bully
- Lateral Opener
- Bully Extension Bias
- Banded Overhead Distraction 
 
Now, before class all of these can be performed at a quicker pace. Still take your time but you do not need to spend a couple mins on each pose. 
 
AFTER class, do all of theses poses 2-3 minutes on each side. ALL of them! Even the Down-dog, Up-dog flow. Each 30 seconds take a DEEP breath and on the exhale get deeper into every single one of these mobility poses. 
 
Give your body some LOVE!

Sophie Hu

Lightweight men Competition Begins @ 12pm:

I know from experience that this day is always better when there are some others around to support you. If you have some free time on Sunday, get down there and cheer them on!

REBOOT TIME

I am going to be taking some days off with my family to head down to Old Latrobe where my Mother and Sisters reside. My family has yet to meet Zoë and are eager to do so. I am looking forward to taking some time to reboot and recharge the batteries for when we get back. So, if you don’t see me for a few days, don’t freak out. :-)

RRT launchingHello CFB!

Hope you had an awesome 4th of July Weekend!  Above is a video that got posted on the CrossFit Main Site just over two years ago when I first became one of your coaches.  I’m getting pumped because it’s that time of year again.  Time for the Renegade Rowing Team to get on the water, learn to row, and come together as a team to hold each other accountable.  Next Thursday we will be holding tryouts at Community Rowing in Brighton.  If you’d like to learn how to row and do it with a bunch of badass CFB members then the time is now.  If you are reading this and you happen to be a CrossFitter from another box, you are welcome to join us, we’d be glad to have you!  Please sign up below.

 

Renegade Rowing Tryouts: Thursday, July 17th @5:30am @CRI

Tryouts Based on your Knowledge of the Following… RRT KSA’s

 

If you are interested, want to know more about the KSA’s, or have a few questions please let me know ASAP so I can get you fired up to get on the water.  I’m working with a couple of people early next week to review basic technique and drills.  Hit me up at [email protected] if you’d like to join in.

Athlete of the Month

  • David Kemp

    IMG_1731

    Let’s start with a regret. I wish I had gotten off my ass and joined CrossFit Boston a year ago. Fitness-wise, it had been a rough year since I got out of the Marines and started at HBS (Harvard Business School). Not that I wasn’t working out at all, but what I was doing wasn’t […]

Every new kid I have the opportunity to coach brings to our community a new perspective. Ashley is a young lady who at 10 years old is already competing in triathlons and is a […]
